I'm not really sure I decided clearly one way or the other which was
likely to be better, so it's more a matter for experience rather than
the original intention.  I do seem to have been fairly deliberate with
the documentation, though; the "otherwise" doesn't seem to leave much

Having the variable set in special cases is a bit of a headache, I
agree, since you don't necessarily know they're there, even if there are
ways round.

It would be tempting to have a different variable for the vared case
